Skillet Chicken Parmesan

    makes 4 servings · prep time: 10 minutes · cook time: 30 minutes

    This chicken Parmesan is so good that you won’t even miss the traditional breading. This is also a great dish for meal prep because it reheats incredibly well. I recommend reheating it in the oven at 275°F until it is warmed through.


    • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • Sea salt and ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup marinara sauce
    • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    • Fresh basil, for garnish


    1.Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2.Season the chicken generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
    3.Heat the olive oil in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken and sear until it is golden brown on one side.
    4.Flip the chicken over and top with the marinara, mozzarella cheese, and Italian seasoning. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
    5.Top the chicken with the Parmesan cheese and return the skillet to the oven for 5 more minutes.
    6.Garnish with fresh basil before serving.

    tip: Be sure to look for a marinara sauce made with clean ingredients—only vegetables and spices. Alternatively, you can visit my site, peaceloveandlowcarb.com, for a few low-carb marinara sauce variations.
